This is very confusing. Being right-handed I appreciated being able to hold the iPod in the landscape position and use the volume-up button to take the shot. Imagine my surprise when I looked at the photos using Windows Explorer to find them all upside down.
After reading your observations I mailed a photo taken this way with the IOS5 mail program and with e-photo (free). The picture sent with the IOS5 mail program arrived upside-down however the same picture sent with e-photo (free) arrive rightside-up.

I have the same problem. Still no real fix. I found one thing that maybe helpful but time consuming.
TIP: If you 1) edit the pictures on the iPhone 4s (just click edit) and Only Rotate them once to any direction. 2) Clcik SAVE 3) Then transfer them to your PC 4) Problem solved and now you can rotate and edit the picture on your computer.
But it is time consuming doing this for every picture. Second thing I noticed is the picture orienttion is completely off.
1) I you take the a normal Photo with iPhone vertical --> the transfered pictures are no longer in Portrait when transfered to PC (They are rotate 90 deg and look side ways)
2) If you take the picture using the phone in a side way orientation (Landscape) with the volume buttons up --> once transfered to PC they will be in Landscape but Upside Down
and vive versa for the other two positions.
So if you take a picture with your iPhone like a camera with the convinience of the Volume Button then all your pictures are save upside down. (Its like buying a digital camera and having to hold it upside down to get a right side up picture)
Apple needs to fix the orientation and tag problem soon. As if this awful battery life wasn't ******* me off enough already.
PS. In other forums some suggested it was an issue with Photostream. I never even turned on Photo Stream so I don't think photo stream being on or not has anything to do with it.

The same problem and have told Apple about it a year ago. I keep hoping with each OS update it will be resolved. The only way it is resolved is to buy a different app like Camera plus. Your pictures will always be the correct orientation.

What I think Apple should do is add a camera settings feature to the settings tab that allows for two new options. Option one would be "camera frame orientation always up". This would mean that no matter how you hold the camera, up is always up on the photo or video. Option two would be "camera frame orientation fixed". A sub option here would allow the user to select either portrait or landscape (with home button on the right) as the default "up" orientation. That would allow those rare two or three people in the universe who really do want to take upside down or sideways photos to do so. The "always up" option would allow the rest of us to take photos without having to worry that they will come out jacked up. In any case, I sure hope Apple is reading its support blogs...seems like there are enough of us out there who are having this photo issue to merit a fix in a not-too-distant future iOS update.

When I email a photo taken by my iphone4s to my outlook express, it is turned 90 degrees CCW.
When I email a photo that was not taken by my iphone, (ie a photo on my Iphone that was downloaded from another source), it appears in my outlook express in the proper orientation (ie the way it appears on my iphone).
When I email a photo on my ipad (no camera, so all pictures on there are saved from another source) to my outlook express, it appears in the correct orientation.
Those same emails, when accessed by my iphone, all appear in the correct orientaion.
So, what does all that mean re the incorrect orientation from iphone camera picture emailed to outlook express (and a yahoo account as well)?
